    Beers to help with your New Year’s Resolution

    With January resolutions still in their infancy, I figured I could lend a hand to people who are having trouble sticking to their guns. Personally, I’m trying to drink smarter, focusing on lower abv and caloric offerings. With that in mind, I set out to grab a few non-alcoholic beers and taste them. I ended

    Saint Arnold Bishop’s Barrel 17

    Saint Arnold’s barrel-aged series has reached its post-hype phase. Don’t let that stop you from hunting for the latest iteration, out today, because it’s delicious. A couple years ago, you needed a spreadsheet and a hashtag to track down a single bottle of each Bishop’s Barrel release. You also had to go to a bar

    Review: Saint Arnold Bishop’s Barrel 15

    I don’t eat a lot of fruit. When drinking an IPA I couldn’t tell you the difference between mango or passion fruit, as many reviews do. “It tastes fruity” or “that has a lot of citrus” may be about as far as I get, so don’t look for my review of the next Brash IPA any

    Brash Brewing First Anniversary Party

    October 8 marked Brash Brewing’s First Anniversary Party. The epic party seemed to have brought out every beer and metal nerd from across the city to Brashland bright and early Saturday afternoon. And rightly so, with exclusive merch teasers and exciting guest taps posted on social media since the tickets went on sale in early

    City Acre: Right at Home at Houston’s New Brewpub

    On Thursday night I attended a preview of the much anticipated City Acre Brewing Co., a brewpub located about 10 minutes north of downtown off U.S. 59 at 3418 Topping Street. Originally slated to open four years ago, but delayed due to complex city regulations and beer laws, City Acre will hold its long-awaited grand opening on July

    Have Your Cookie and Drink It, Too

    Forget cookies and milk — cookies and beer is where it’s at. As craft beer has become more popular, interest in beer and food pairing has increased. Some of the most creative pairings involve a favorite American treat: Girl Scout cookies. As articles of Girl Scout cookie pairings spread across social media, Ballast Point Brewing

    Adopt-a-Bastard at Brash: Arrogant Bastard Hits the Road

    Late last summer, Stone Brewing Company, the largest brewery in Southern California, made a big two-fold announcement. First, what is arguably the cockiest beer in America would branch out to become his own product line. Second, as has happened to the best of us, the Arrogant Bastard was finally sent packing and hitting the road.

    Guest Post: It’s Time for Texas Pilsners!

    Editor’s Note: This article is written by Joey Williams, the Beer Department Manager of Spec’s of the “downtown” location on Smith Street. As he describes below, he offered to lead us in a tasting of Texas(ish) pilsners and we happily took him up on it. At the tasting were Houston Beer Guide writers Josh, Jeff,

    Divine Reserve 16 – A review and commentary

    Nothing seems to get the Houston beer community more engaged and interested than a Divine Reserve release. Searching out DR on release day is, in my judgment, a rite of passage for the greater Houston beer community. Whether that’s standing in line outside a local beer store of choice, whispering a secret password to a supermarket
